Eventually, in about 5 billion years. The Sun's hydrogen in its core will be depleted, causing nuclear fusion to switch to helium. This process will inflate the Sun, engulfing the first 4 planets. Earth will be scorched as the Sun approaches, then swallowed by the outer layers of the Sun.
The Sun won't go supernova though, it's too small.
There is many theories as to what is going to happen with the sun. Yes, one theory is that the sun will eventually get so close to the sun that the earth turns into a giant ball of extreme heat. Another theory is that the sun will burn out because it is a star and stars eventually burn out.
Yes, but that's MILLIONS of years from now, Maybe billions. The sun is actually still early in its life right now, so don't worry. With technology advances being made so fast in mankind, we're bound to either find a "new earth" or make something that will save mankind.
The Earth is not a living thing. If it was it would have consumed all the oxygen and water on earth, However the good news would be it would have countless off-springs that it bears and die daily. Not necessarily by the sun. It would also need a husband unless if it chose to be a single cell animal or plant or earth that multiply by fission.
The sun, a type G star, will die in about five billion years. The sun will have used up most of its hydrogen, and its core will have become denser than it now is. Because of this pressure, the sun's core will heat up to 100,000,000 K (180,000,000 °F), instead of its normal 10,000,000 K (18,000,000 °F). This will cause the sun to expand so much that it will envelop Mercury and Venus, and also vaporize Earth. The sun will be known as a red giant. Its color will have changed from yellow to orange-red. The swelling is due to the heat: When any matter gets heated, it expands. The sun's intense heat will be enough to fuse the helium into larger atoms, and as long as its helium supply lasts, it will continue to shine - about 100,000,000 years. During this time, however, the sun will begin to shrink, due to its lessening mass. When its fuel runs out, it will become a white dwarf - a star that shines because it is hot, not because it is producing energy through fusion. When the sun runs out of heat, it will be a huge, black, chunk of carbon, floating in space. It will be called a black dwarf - a dead star.
It already hit my area... Run while you still have the chance!!! Jk. Anyways, in a couple million years, our sun will start to "die". It will expand large enough to engulf three planets and form a "red giant star". Eventually, it will collapse into its center and start a supernova explosion. After the death of a star, it will either turn into a white dwarf star, or a black hole if it's big enough. Our sun is pretty small, so it will create a dwarf star. ...And that is basically what will happen when our sun dies. :D

1 earth isnt alive so no 2 but it will kill the orginisams (sorry about spelling) on it because t when the hydrogen is used up it will grow to engulf mercury venus and mabey even earth the exact size is still undetermined but then the sun will colapse in on itself creating a white dwarf witch will give off verry light but by then we will have died from the intense heat and cancer but that wont happem for 5 billion years so you dont have to worry about that
